Art Sales – have preschool and elementary students produce great art and have a show. Parents and friends buy back their budding artist’ masterpieces. Ask everyone you meet. Even if you have sent out letters, be sure to carry a pledge form with you so that when you talk to people about the event, you can ask them to donate right then. Take those sheets with you to meetings. When you carry a pledge form with you, indicate your own contribution at the top. Make sure the top few donations on form are large. Other people are apt to follow suit: conversely, if you start with a $2 contribution, others may follow with $2. Don’t prejudge whether people will give. Let them say no or ignore your letter rather than not ask. Auction off a prime parking space at work. Auction off a half or whole day off from work. Auction off other team members to work a day for someone. Auction off a picnic - assemble everyone together in your cafeteria, or some other general meeting area, and auction off a picnic lunch your team has prepared. Auction off the boss - have the boss or department heads as your assistant for a day at work.

Babysitters are always a commodity! A NO-bake sale – where coworkers pay so they don’t have to bake goodies. Barbecue lunches – Prepare and sell barbecue lunches! B-I-N-G-O – bingo games…ask participants to donate their winnings! Block party – have a neighborhood block party…sell food and charge admission! Book sale – dust those bookshelves and have a book sale! Boss for the day – allow people to bid on being boss for the day — high bid wins! Host a Bake Sale Bounce-A-Thon – local elementary schools give each student a collection envelope to take home in order to collect pledges for bouncing a basketball for one ½ hour. Each class in the school takes turns gathering in the school’s front hall throughout the day to bounce their basketballs. Bouquet of flowers - ask a local florist to donate one bouquet of flowers for January, February, and March, then have the employees take a chance to win some “springtime” for their desk. Bowling chance – $1 gives you the chance to throw 2 balls (toy bowling set). If you strike, your name is entered into a draw two times. If you spare with your second ball, your name is entered in the draw once. Team is to solicit a nice prize for the draw. Brown Bag Lunch Day – everyone brings in their own lunch and donates the money they would have spent.
